Units of Study Grades K-2 Writing, 3rd Edition

The new primary Units of Study in Writing represent wholesale changes. The best of all that was offered in the previous editions has been streamlined, clarified, and kept, but the new units are new indeed. Lucy Calkins and the coauthors worked diligently to incorporate all their latest thinking and learning into the new units including:

  • research on the science of reading;
  • new comprehension research;
  • language research, including support for foundational skills such as grammar;
  • new research on writing, including writing from sources;
  • and research on knowledge generation.

The Units of Study address the full range of domains emphasized by the reading research community to provide a truly research-based approach that brings the best of what we know into classrooms in ways that will spark joy and provide teachers with the tools they need to teach responsively. The new Units of Study will do more to empower, revitalize, and strengthen teachers than ever before—and that will build even stronger communities of learning to set all kids on trajectories of growth.
